Since the 13th century, Portoroz (Italian: Portorose) has been known as a health resort. Here the monks of the St. Laurence treated the patients with seawater and salt water. The curative effects of these in cases of rheumatism, dropsy, scrofula, obesity and festering wounds were widely known. Untill the fall of the Venetian Republic at the end of the 18th century the area of Portoroz was under the Venetian rule, followed by Napoleon and Hapsburg rule which ended with the First World War. At the end of the 19th century, a shareholders' company was established, consisting of wealthy citizens and intellectuals of the Piran community, in order to build a spa and health resort. They were well aware of the numerous possibilities for the development of spa tourism in the pleasant climate of Portoroz.
